For the stroker, we stepped up to a larger Crane hydraulic-roller cam. Even with stronger valvespring pressure, these lifters worked flawlessly.
This book compares products from different manufacturers and isn’t afraid to choose winners and losers. Offering over cfm, these were actually more head than the little could use, but they worked very well on this application and now the combination has room to grow. This dyyno a function of the somewhat wider lobe-separation angle of degrees. Steven Rupp – November 22, Southfield, MI http: We have included the hests and torque graphs for a bone-stock 5.
5 Litre Ford Dyno Tests

We decided to test both ideas, so we ordered two roller cams from Lunati: Because this engine only made hp, we might have made the same power with a smaller cfm carb. Fuel flow came tets of a complete Aeromotive fuel system. Typical of carbureted applications, the produced slightly more peak power and less torque than the EFI version, with peaks of hp and lb-ft.
The Dart heads were capable of supporting a great deal more power, but the gord was the displacement, cam timing, and intake manifold.
Despite adding 30 degrees of intake duration, this cam improved torque throughout the entire test from 3, rpm on up. Slover machined the heads for screw-in studs and guideplates since the original configuration used a net lash system that was just too vord.
The same can be said of hp combos making hp and hp motors that make nowhere near hp. The rest went very smoothly, and we reused the stock lifters and suffered no ulcers worrying about breaking in the cam.
As with the combinations, the carbureted combo produced slightly more peak power than the EFI version, but slightly less peak torque. Yank a motor out of the junkyard, clean it up, add a camshaft, intake, and a carburetor and see how much power we can squeeze out of it. We tried two different Lunati Voodoo hydraulic roller cams.
The larger one was still relatively conservative with degrees of duration at 0. While the modular Ford is a killer powerplant, it lacks the variety of parts and variety of possible combinations of heads, intakes, cams and displacement. If you are plan to swap this 5. The Dart SHP short-block was equipped with flat-top pistons that combined with Dart Pro 1 heads with 62cc combustion chambers.
To properly illustrate the power gains offered by the modified versions, we first had to dyno test a stock 5. The engine was in extremely good condition considering its mileage—the factory crosshatch was still evident on the cylinder walls.
Edelbrock E-Force on an S Coyote! We were also able to remove the lifters for the cam change without having to remove the heads.
Ford L Engine Performance Packages – Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords Magazine
First off, our stock 5. You can also easily upgrade this system by adding a larger nitrous solenoid since the fuel solenoid is capable of delivering fuel up to hp.
Enter Search Text Search Text. Our stories often provide the recipe and the results. We heated the bottle to psi and hit the button at 4, rpm. This one added another 10 degrees of duration over the smaller Voodoo cam, along with 0. Perhaps even more surprising was how well this engine idled, calmly purring with 16 inches of manifold vacuum at rpm.
Often times a simple blower or turbo will make one fly. The injected version was equipped with a set of CNC-ported heads from Procomp Electronics, a healthy Crane hydraulic-roller cam 0.
As you might expect with more duration, the idle quality dropped significantly but was still able to make The number of performance packages that have been applied to the otherwise-stock short-block is staggering, but this is a good example of what can be expected.
The Crane hydraulic-roller cam was carried over on this carbureted application. I prefer to receive internal offers and promotions. Run in anger with a healthy solid-roller cam from Cam Research Corp, the carbureted produced hp at 6, tetss and lb-ft of torque at 5, rpm. The heads also required some machine work, including screw-in studs, guideplates, and widening the spring pockets for bigger valvesprings.
The question was whether we wanted a torquey small-block or a more cammed-up rpm engine to boost peak horsepower. With over hp, it was certainly healthy for something that looked like a
